A 19th Century Painting of the ‘The Keith Hall or Kintore Ox’, in the Original Giltwood Frame

A large scaled oil on canvas depicting a magnificent ox, noted as the ‘Keith Hall or Kintore Ox’. The plaque labelling the tremendous attributes of the animal, including the weights of the heart, liver, feet and tongue. With overall soft, dry surface in superb condition. In the manner, and likely circle, of Abraham Cooper (London 1787-1868), the well-regarded 18th and 19th Century British animal and battle painter. The rear of the painting has a charming newspaper cutting pasted from the Aberdeen Journal on October 22 1834, further describing the qualities of the ox, and the butcher at hand.

Provenance: Anthony Adrian Keith-Falconer, 7th Earl of Kintore (1794-1844), Keith Hall, Aberdeenshire, and by descent.
